Two alumni publish journal articles
December has brought not one, not two, but three articles published in notable architectural history journals by departmental alumni. Nathaniel Walker (M.A. 2006), currently pursuing his Ph.D. in architectural history at Brown University, published an article, “Savannah’s Lost Squares: Progress versus Beauty in the Depression-era South,” in the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians (JSAH), vol. 70, no. 4 (Dec. 2011): 512-31. The article is based on his M.A. Thesis project at SCAD and is the first time one of our students or alumni has had an article published in this prestigious journal. He also published “Sister Cities: Corporate Destiny in the Metropolis Utopias of King Camp Gillette, Thea Von Harbou, and Fritz Lang,” in Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review 23, no. 1 (Fall 2011): 41-54 — also a first-time appearance.
Kelley Stroup (M.F.A. 2011) published an article, “‘Where the Church Is, There is the Spirit of God’: Coptic Orthodox Architecture in the Southern United States,” in ARRIS: Journal of the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, vol. 22 (2011): 70-85. The article is based on her MFA thesis and is only the second time one of our students has had an article published in this notable journal.
